everybody knows what kind of person i am. >> what kind of person are you? >> 49ers star defensive end ray mcdonald defending himself after being arrested for domestic violence. hi everyone i'm heather holmes. >> and i'm mike mibach. he's an integral part to the 49ers. but today he's bringing attention to the problem with
players in the nfl. just last week nfl commissioner roger goodell announced harsher penalties for players. we have team coverage for you tonight including some insight from sports anchor joe fonzi. we begin with azenith who talked with mcdonald as he walked right out of jail. >> our cameras are rolling as 49ers player ray mcdonald walked out of the santa clara jail just after 11:00 today. trying to hail a cab. defensive lineman at first didn't say much about his arrest and then he opened up. >> what do you want to say to your fans? >> the truth will come out. you know. hey, i can't say too much right now. but, the truth will come out. i mean, everybody knows the kind of person i am. >> what kind of person are you?
>> i mean, a good person. >> reporter: police arrested the 29-year-old for felony domestic challenges -- charges in his upscale home. the sacramento bee is reporting mcdonald was involved in an altercation with his girlfriend who is pregnant and showed police her bruises. >> this younger group is, i don't know. sometimes they seem like they don't have their head on their shoulders. >> reporter: last september, 49ers linebacker alden smith was arrested for dui in the same neighborhood as mcdonald. >> we want them to be the best players they can be and not have any distractions off the field. and making unethical and idiotic decisions is really hurting the team, the fans. >> reporter: this comes as
roger goodell on thursday changed the punishment for offenders. they issued a statement saying the 49ers organization is aware of the recent report regarding ray mcdonald and we take such matters seriously. >> taxi. >> reporter: this is not the first time mcdonald has been arrested. four years ago he was booked for suspicion of driving under the influence. in santa clara, azenith smith, ktvu news. >> 49ers coach jim harbaugh has warned players that domestic violence would not be tolerated. former 49ers safety whitner was quoted just last year about coach harbaugh's views. he said we can do anything in the world and we can come and talk to him and he will forgive us except put our hands on women. if you put your hands on a women whitner says, then you're
done in his book. >> coach harbaugh has yet to comment on the arrest. and a huge blow for the team and the game. >> let's state that ray mcdonald has not been convicted of anything yet. but this is the last thing that the 49ers want to be talking about. as you heard from the quote from jim harbaugh, domestic violence is something the team takes seriously. last year when alden smith was arrested for dui on a friday. he was on the field the following sunday. smith just two days ago received his punishment from the league a stiff nine day suspension. compare that to the two game suspension handed down to ray rice for an assault on his then
girlfriend. if the accusations against mcdonald prove to be true the 49ers and mcdonald can expect a maximum penalty. so what will mcdonals absence mean on the field. the 49ers are already without smith for nine gameless. bowman will miss half the year because of injury. it may be a bigger blow to the reputation of a team that says drafting players with characters is one of its great concerns. we'll have much more coming up in sports. >> there's real world implications not only for mcdonald but for the nfl as a whole. >> absolutely. i think the league already judged now by how it handles this moving forward. >> thank you, tim. according to an nfl tracking data base. the 49ers lead the league in player arrests. ray mcdonald was the tenth arrest of 49ers players since the beginning of 2012. as joe just mentioned last
